I can understand the concern of paying for a product and then having a company go out of business. This was my concern as we paid for the whole trailer early, so I did a little vetting on ETI. According to Dun and Bradstreet, ETI has annual revenues which puts them in the top 20% of all trailer manufacturers and their revenue per employee is well above the industry average. This would indicate a very well managed company. This is all public information but a more detailed report can be purchased from Dun and Bradstreet.
Also, I have seen Reace and Tammy provide customer service way above and beyond the call of duty over what was required so I wouldn't worry about a thing as this kind of service provides a strong and loyal customer base. I'm sure your trailer will be ready and waiting for you but probably not soon enough. If a company is overwhelmed with orders, it means they must be doing something right.
The currency markets can fluctuate wildly and if you see an exchange rate you can live with, I would take it. As ETI purchases a lot of their inputs from the US, you can see what a juggling act that Reace has to put up with. Loren
